I've been growing carnivorous plants since 1983 so I suppose I do know a little bit about growing them but not everything. I know what works in my conditions but that doesn't suit everyone else's. I opened this new forum as I have been posting for years on the Florida CP site and the only other one posting of late was also from the UK. In the absence of any Administration there it was impossible to register new members. I hope members will look at the header and keep it friendly and have fun
Hi Fred and indeed future friends. Nice to see a new forum that can perhaps fill a gap. I too have been growing CPs (generally outside sarracenia) since the early eighties and have learned a considerable amount in that time, both from the mistakes I have made and a great deal more from helpful people. I have no qualifications in this field, but do have some experience which I am more than happy to share with anyone who wants it. Cheers Steve
Hi Fred , first off congratulations on creating a new forum , I have only been growing cp's for about 6 years and it hasn't been easy , lets say I am not "a natural" , but have become fairly obsessed , with help and information found on other forums I have grown a few that have done pretty well. I hope others get involved and you get a friendly and informative community going, cheers Chris
I have been growing since 1990 and now run the seed bank for the Carnivorous Plant Society. I'm also the Enquiries officer. I hope this forum is a success, most others seem to be dieing lately, so it would be great to turn that around, get people away from Facebook and back into posting on forums, where the information is easier to access and so it is easier for the young beginners (and old) to find the guidance they need.
Well I got round to joining Fred. Tardy as usual ?
For anyone who doesn't know me my names Sam and I've been growing CPs in some form for around 8 years now (I tried working this out with Ada the other day and failed) I move around a lot so my collection has varied over the years.
